The meaning of Christmas
Placeholder Image

Christmas time is here and recently The Georgia Arts Academy Inc.Music School warmed the hearts of 212 parents, student relatives and their guests in contrast to the frigid weather.

The evening of music was held recently at The Church Of God on Ga. Highway 138, and highlighted 52 students ranging in age from 4 to 13. Poems, piano selections, a violin solo by Siobhan Sampson from Excel Christian Academy, eight GAA choir selections and a wonderful rendition of The Christmas Song by Liberty Middle School student Tashera Camacho reminded everyone of the real meaning of Christmas.

Special guests included Pastor and author Oral Hazell of Agape Fellowship Christian Church of Conyers, Attorney Stephanie Lindsey and Mr. Oz Nesbitt, Rockdale Post 1 Commissioner. Mr. Nesbitt was presented the award for Outstanding Community Service by Peeks Chapel Elementary student Michael Mathieson. Ms. Lanai Marshall of Peak Chapel Elementary and Cameron Callaway of Clements Middle School received the prestigious Rising Star Award which is given to students that demonstrate a love of music, have good grades, a strong possession of talent and growth in performance.

Nicole Lezama, Co-Founder and Board Member of Georgia Arts Academy Inc., said " Music has the ability to bring people of all ages and ethnic background together. The timeless Christmas Music Classics by these children will help make the season bright and provide the warmth needed for the holiday season."
